Bass Flats & Beyond - Okeechobee

Bass Flats & Beyond operates around Southeast Florida, getting groups onto that fish of a lifetime in a staggering range of habitats. Capt. John Larsen is skilled at catching many types of fish, but his real passion is Bass fishing.

You will be spending your day out on Lake Okeechobee battling huge Largemouth Bass. This is some of the best Bass action in the state, and you couldn’t pick a more beautiful place to do it.

Capt. John’s 22’ Sterling 2020 is a thing of beauty. Built in 2020 and designed specifically for this style of fishing, she boasts a top speed of 65 knots, which is enough to have a great day even without fishing! The vessel also has plenty of fishing space, Garmin electronics, stereo, and 3 livewells to keep your bait fresh and fighting fit.

Bass Flats & Beyond specializes in light tackle and fly fishing. You will be supplied with tournament-grade conventional tackle and can bring your favorite fly gear along, too. You will also have a range of lures to choose from, and Capt. John can stock live bait for a small surcharge.

Just pack your license, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, camera, and any food and drink you want for the day, and you’re good to go.

This is exactly what makes Florida Bass fishing so good. A seasoned, passionate captain with a great boat and a can-do attitude. Oh, and some incredible lakes teeming with trophy fish!

My dad owned a dive shop in Jupiter. I got familiar with with the reefs and wrecks spearfishing when I was very young. Later on, at UCF, I was on the Bass fishing team and won some tournaments. I'd say that ever since then Bass fishing is my absolute favorite. I got intimately familiar with both freshwater and saltwater fishing in Florida.
